Reviewed July 25, 2012

We stayed at the Dardanos Hotel in the centre of the small village of Patara for 4 nights (8-12 July 2012) and very much enjoyed our stay. We arrived very late but Arif greeted us and promptly showed us to our room (number 19). We were impressed: a very spacious, newly refurbished, air-conditioned, clean room, nice decor, confortable bed, lovely bathroom, hair-dryer, balcony. Very quiet at night but expect to be woken up by cockerels! Breakfast is on the outdoor garden terrace next door; there's a bar there too. Arif is a friendly, enterprising and knowledgeable young man, who speaks good English. He took us to the sand dunes in his jeep to see sun set one evening and was very good company. He arranged our airport transfer and our transfer to our next destination. Everything was spot on.
The hotel is well run, everything worked; it is excellent value for money.
Thank you very much, Arif and Team, and best wishes!

ps/ The Patara Expresi is a terrific service!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 19 (Double) on the 1st floor. Very spacious. A spacious alcove instead of a wardro...

My boyfriend and I just returned from a week in Patara and we stayed at Dardanos Hotel: we were pleasantly surprised with all aspects.
First of all the welcome by the staff, warm and genuine, that made us feel special guest indeed. Arif, the boss, in particular, was really friendly and efficient at the same time and helped us to plan some excursions in the nearby, where a wonderful archaeological site must be absolutely visited.
Rooms are large, very well furnished, with rare elegance; everything has been recently renovated; the garden is enchanting and the value for money is really really good, in my opinion.
We had great fortune of finding and staying at Dardanos. I recommend it to all, I can say for certain!

Patara is a paradise of place in which you can live a relaxing holiday with your friends and family.
The owner is very friendly like all the staff
The hotel and the rooms are pretty cool, clean and with the ari-conditioning.
I loved the breakfast in the garden in front of the hotel.
In a few world...I can't wait to return there because I felt like in my own house :)

Patara is a lovely town to stay in, with a fantasic beach and Roman ruins to explore on the doorstep. We stayed for over a week and could easily have done two. There is plenty to see and do on the surrounding area. Beach is lovely and not developed in order to protect the archaeological site and the local turtles.
The hotel was excellent. Good rooms with aircon and a marvellous breakfast every morning on the terrace really set me up for the day.
The owner Arif was very friendly and a great host. He had useful local recommendations as well as helping us with boat trips, airport transfers etc.
Recommended! And I will certainly be going back next year.

I just returned from a week long holiday in Patara and I was very lucky to stay at Dardanos hotel. From the first day we felt very welcomed and the owner of the hotel could not have been more helpful and accommodating during the entire stay. Arif's recommendations were always accurate and honest. He arranged us numerous excursions, transfer bookings, dinner reservations and all of the above were done with the highest level of professionalism.
The hotel is very well maintained - it has a beautiful garden where delicious breakfast is served and at night it would turn into a cozy and friendly lounge. The rooms are quite basic, but very clean, quite, and comfortable, and the hotel's website pictures are very accurate.
Patara and its surroundings has a lot to offer - Breathtaking sunsets on the dunes, clean beaches, number of archeological sites, very relaxing boat trips and much more. it is rare and authentic place and I am very happy I have discovered it. I am definitely coming back and when there, I am staying at Dardanos hotel!

I stayed at Dardanos hotel in Patara for a week in Sept 2011.
The hotel owner, Arif, is one of the kindest persons I have met in my life!
He helped me and my group of friends to organize tours and excursions in the area, he was always available if you had questions and if you asked him for something... he would never forget!
The hotel is well located in Patara, with a beautiful patio where to have an al fresco breakfast in the morning and drinks at night, under a roof of grape leaves.
The rooms are unpretentious, quiet and clean, very good value for money, with air conditioning. The buffet breakfast is not huge in terms of choice but it is prepared with the freshest local products - ask the chickens of the village where the boiled eggs come from!! :-)
Hector, the Dardanos puppy dog, is everybody's best friend and likes to sleep close to your feet if you allow him.
Patara itself is a tiny village with a handful of very good restaurants, sfkillful barbers and pancake places. The beach is stunning and you can organize many tours and activities if you like active holidays. Otherwise you can just sunbathe on the beach and do nothing and be completely happy.
To conclude: if you want a fancy holiday in a 5-stars hotel with 3 swimming pools in a trendy and busy location then DO NOT go to Dardanos hotel, but if you aim to a laid back, no frills place, where you can enjoy good food, meet truly friendly people, relax, discover the beautiful surrounding area... well, you could not find a better spot than the Dardanos and Patara!

Room Tip: The rooms will be refurbished during winter time, so you can expect higher standards
